The hole - is it empty - or full of fun?


Back in the medieval ages... when Plastic was not plastic and cars looked like Jetson spaceships. And all people in Europe still only played Ice Hockey... cough cough hrm... we almost spilled our coffee now as we try to describe the era before Floorball.

At this time the Cosom Corporation from Minneapolis not only came up with a ball - they also came with the first basic plastic sticks..
In the midst of this they had figured out on how to create a ball - with holes - that should work as air brakes...
Problem was that the first balls was not designed with pre-founded or molded holes.
The solution was easy - they punched the holes out - one by one - and they did like 26 for each and every ball.

If you ever in your wildest fantasy anticipated to read something like this about Floorball - well, then you are as nutz as we are.
We think these incredible pieces of left-over plastics is something of the most incredible we ever heard of and rather well suited for the first Floorball museum ever..

Caution

Research suggest that eye-injuries are more common in Floorball as compared to Tennis, but less common as compared to Squash (similar to Racquetball).
To minimize this risk of injury Floorballcentral recommend: Use certified protective eye-wear (mandated in many European areas for the youth). Do not lay down on the court. Follow the rules strict on stick height.

Also if you get addicted to this sport - do not blame us!
